There is a reason abortion is on every politician’s tongue

Two weeks ago, the news media reported that a father in Alabama confessed to throwing his four children from the Dauphin Island Bridge. The ages of the children ranged from a few months to three years.

I’m sure that someone who read about the tragedy had a sick feeling. How could a father murder his own flesh and blood by throwing them away like people get rid of garbage?

I think the spirit of murder that has swept over this country can be traced to January 1973. It was then that the U.S. Supreme Court struck down state laws restricting abortions. It was then that a majority of Supreme Court Justices disagreed with God, the Creator, as to when life begins.

The Bible says that God knew us when we were in our mother’s womb. Since that dreadful decision by the Supreme Court, over 50 million babies have been murdered.

The pro-choice people don’t like the term murdered; they prefer to use terminated. When will the slaughtering of our children stop? Only when the people sitting in the church pews on Sunday say, “Enough is enough,” and when the professed Christians take active roles in the political process and elect pro-life candidates.

Some people accuse me of being a one issue voter. I’ll accept that label, with pride, knowing that my God is pro-life. Does that mean I don’t care about other issues such as the economy, healthcare, and the environment? No, but for the life of me, I don’t see how a person who is not concerned about human life can govern with wisdom from God.

Over the years, since the Roe vs. Wade decision, politicians have hoped that the abortion issue would go away. Evidently, it’s important to God, because He will not let the issue of when life begins be forgotten.
